The work of volunteers at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway and Shanklin Theatre has been celebrated today (Tuesday).
His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester presented the groups with Queens Awards for Voluntary Service.
The awards recognise the work of people doing volunteering work that is a social, economic or environmental service to the local community.
130 organisations across the country have received a trophy and a certificate this year.
Volunteer co-ordinator for the Friends of Shanklin Theatre Louise Bond told Isle of Wight Radio that collecting the award from the Duke was 'nerve-wracking but lovely'.
'He asked me where it [the award] is going to go and I said my office', she laughed.
'We'll have to find a special place for it to share it with everyone'.
Chairman of the Isle of Wight Steam Railway Steve Oates described the award as 'phenomenal'.
'We have over three-hundred volunteers currently, let alone all of those people who over the last 45 years have given up a huge amount of their time to make the railway possible.
'It's terrific for us'.
Locomotive driver Tony French has been at the railway for 44 years.
'I realised my childhood ambition of becoming a train driver, it's every little boy's dream and that's what I've done', he told Isle of Wight Radio.
'Overall it's a team effort. We have lots of people involved - all ages and all sexes.
'Everybody gives up their spare time and we're here representing all of those people and their hard work'.
